Headstone for Charlie and his first wife Edna
Charlie Clayborn was born in March 1888 in DeKalb County, Tennessee.[The birthdate is based on Charlie's tombstone, but the 1900 U.S. Census gives 1890 as the birth year.] He married first to Edna Stanley (born in 1888) on 18 January 1907 and together they had five children, listed below. Edna Stanley Clayborn's tombstone indicates her death in 1915; however, her son Clay Edward was born in 1917, and she is recorded in the U.S. Census of 1920.

On 27 October 1934 Charlie married Willie Scurlock Floyd in Wilson County, Tennessee.[Tennessee, State Marriage Index, 1780-2002, accessed 6 March 2015 via Ancestry.com, citing p. 20, Wilson, Tennessee, United States, Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville, Tennessee.] To this union a son, Johnnie J. Clayborn, was born. This marriage lasted only a short time and ended in divorce. Charlie Clayborn married Laura Elizabeth Wilkerson on 30 January 1941 in White County, Tennessee.[Tennessee, State Marriage Index, 1780-2002, accessed 6 March 2015 via Ancestry.com, citing p. 328, White, Tennessee, United States, Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville, Tennessee.] This marriage ended in divorce prior to 1947, as Laura Elizabeth Wilkerson would later marry Claudie Virgil Baker on 18 April 1947 in Walker County, Georgia.[Walker County Marriage Records, accessed 14 March 2015 via http://www.usgwarchives.net/marriages/georgia/walker.htm.] Charlie Clayborn and Laura Elizabeth Wilkerson had one daughter, Montie Lee Clayborn, listed below.
